"This book starts with the basics of ultrasound and venous anatomy and then delves into the specifics of evaluation of the superficial venous system. ... The intended audience includes all practitioners involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with chronic venous diseases. The book does a great job of pairing ultrasound figures with descriptive text to aid in visual learning. Readers can find additional supplementary images and videos online."
